HOW DOES MUSCLE TESTING WORK?
Muscle testing is a method which registers electric activity in the muscles and Central Nervous System to find the area of dysfunction. It is a technique used to determine communication problems, imbalances in the mind, body or spirit. Muscle testing is not painful and only muscles that are not injured can be used for muscle testing.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING A TREATMENT?
Muscle testing can be done sitting, standing or laying down, depending on the muscle that is being tested. Dr. Jiménez will use body points, vials, colors, stones, statements or visualizations to help identify if these disrupt the electric current that flows through your body. Once these are identified, these imbalances will be corrected by stimulating reflex points in a specific sequence.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A TREATMENT?
All the treatments involve the movement and re-routing of energy, as well as the way your body uses your vital energy. Once your body realizes that there are malfunctions that require immediate attention, it will focus on healing these. This usually translates to a feeling of tiredness, and/or increased thirst/appetite for 1 – 3 days after your initial treatment. This post-treatment effect will gradually subside as your body completes the healing process.
One way to counter-balance this effect is by increasing your water intake and eating rare red meat (preferably organic). These are your natural medicines. Water provides your body the ability to eliminate toxins while still maintaining homeostasis. The rare red meat is “ready fuel” your body can easily utilize the intact micro and macro nutrients to replenish and rebuild. (Note: this is not the same for fully cooked red meat – your body works extra hard to break that down and very little nutrients survive the cooking process). If you are vegan/vegetarian/do not eat red meat do your best to consume the most complete proteins, but know that the “sluggishness” will take more time to resolve, as well as the benefits of the treatments to manifest.
WHAT IF I’M RECEIVING OTHER TYPES OF TREATMENTS?
Because the treatment emphasizes on optimizing your functionality, the effect of other treatments, such as massage, acupuncture, or chiropractic adjustments, etc. will be stronger, last longer or can go deeper. Reaching optimal health becomes easier when your energy is used more efficiently.
